Louis van Gaal says he will never quit the Manchester United job, dismissing claims he offered his resignation to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward following the defeat against Southampton.
Reports had claimed the Dutchman tendered his resignation after the 1-0 loss on Saturday but Goal understands they were wide of the mark.
Van Gaal labelled the stories suggesting he had to be persuaded to stay as "awful and horrible" on Thursday and has further reiterated his desire to continue at Old Trafford.
Asked about the claims he offered to walk away from the job, Van Gaal told reporters: "I have not mentioned that, ever. I am always fighting.
"I have signed a three-year contract here. It's a process, not one game, and I want to continue until the end. When I'm not willing to do that, I don't think I would have started here one-and-a-half years ago.
"When I have signed for clubs, I have always spoken a long time with the CEO or with the owners, not only at United, but also at Bayern Munich and Barcelona, and I have the faith that they always support me.
